Nintendo Wii, no likey second hand smoke

Here’s an interesting story. The Boston Herald is reporting that second-hand cigarette smoke causes the laser in the Wii, that reads the game discs, to malfunction. Apparently, the smoke dirties the lens preventing the Wii from loading certain game discs properly. Nintendo has offered to clean up any affected Wii’s at no extra charge.

Nintendo is saying that the problem is more prominent when reading large capacity, dual layered discs, like the newly released “Super Smash Bros. Brawl“. A cleaned lens should fix the issue.

Not only is smoking bad for your health, it also kills your Nintendo Wii. Who knew?
